Young All Whites fall short at World Cup

12:38 pm on 6 November 2009

The Young All Whites fairytale run at the under 17 football world cup has come to a disappointing end after being outclassed by the hosts and defending champions Nigeria 5 nil in the opening round of the knockout stage.

However the young all whites coach Steve Cain says Nigeria are the best team at the World Cup and he's incredibly proud of his side who were the first New Zealand football team to reach the knockout stage of any FIFA tournament.
